Equality, Diversity and Inclusion
We are proud of the strength and success that comes from the diverse research environment that we have within the Centre. As a Centre that employs members of staff as part of the University of Cambridge, we are aligned with the EDI policies of the School of Clinical Medicine and also CRUK. The School of Clinical Medicine has a dedicated governance group overseeing equality, diversity and inclusion related issues. Regular talks are held throughout the year and all staff members are mandated to undertake Equality and Diversity training. As well as the staff we directly employ we also value EDI of our membership list. Our EDI champion, Kelly Holmes, (ACI Programme Manager), is responsible for raising awareness, organising events and signposting people for advice and information. If you have any ideas or suggestions, please get in touch.
